president obama would win by 138 electoral votes. there are no marching bands leading people to the polls from the romney side right now. that is not what they need. what the romney side needs is that they still have to persuade people that governor romney is the guy they should vote for. at the national level, that means they need to fix whatever has gone so wrong with their campaign message and they need to stop doing whatever it is that has turned so many people off to their candidate. when you ask voters whether they like this mitt romney guy, the answer is a very, very plain answer. no. his favorable ratings are in the low 40s. almost 10 points lower than the ratings for president obama. lower, even, than the famously unpopular former president george w. bush right now. swing state voters say they do not think that mitt romney cares about the needs and problems of people like them. some of mr. romney's numbers are just shockingly bad. i mean double check. shockingly bad. look at the percentage of swing state voters who say mitt romney's policies will favor the middle class. in florid

voters are fairly indicated and they are not prepared to vote for president obama and then put into the majority leadership of the senate a man who says his number one agenda is to frustrate president obama. you also have scott brown literally raising money with an e-mail that says send me money so i can help check the obama agenda. so you have his recognition that what he plans to do is -- you talk about credibility for him to claim he hasn't made up his mind for majority leader is literally noncredible. the other issue is when he was asked who were his best supreme court justices, his first mention was sko lee ya. i think as you sat there, you could see him say to himself, maybe that wasn't the best thing to say. he claims to be supportive of the women's right to choose. he believes in equality for lgbt people. and the first word out of his mouth when asked about supreme court justices is a ferve rent opponent of all those causes. scott brown when asked on issues, i have an open mind on this. well, i think he's kind of crossing the line from independent into incoherence and it's becau

people vote for mitt romney is not something from the obama presidency but rather something secret from barack obama's past. something secret people didn't know about him before. if they only knew this about him, his reelection would be impossible. that's the one side of this bomb shell tape. from the other side, this year's bomb shell tapes of paul ryan and mitt romney have not been about some secret past for these men. unless you count paul ryan pledging his allegiance back in 2005. the tape that's made a big impact against the republican side this year has been tape of things that paul ryan and mitt romney have been saying within the past year. specifically when they are talking to conservative audiences. so two weeks ago, david corn and ryan grim at "the huffington post" posted video of romney talking to wealthy donors in florida. deriding the 47% of the country that he said did not pay federal income taxes and who were dependent on the government and victims and who he would never be able to reach because he would not be able to purr suede them to take responsibility for their live

. but now you look at the polling in iowa and say obama is up by 7 in iowa and people are voting in iowa as of this week. with early voting, every day from now until november 6th is election day. that not only saps some of the value out of the debates, which start next week, it also undercuts the potential potency of october surprise. in the associated press write up of this early voting phenomenon this year, the write up, they quote a professor who is an expert on election statistics. if you have the game changer, you've got to do that soon. if you wait until the weekend prior to the election to release your stink bomb, you've lost coloradans, and he's right. that's one of the battleground states where most ballots are expected to be cast early. by election day, colorado will already be mostly decided. so if you're losing today, at this point in the campaign, hurry up and fix it. mitt romney's campaign adviser said back in march, remember, the etch a sketch thing. once the general election starts, that's essentially an opportunity to relaunch the whole campaign. remember that? >> i

, sort of like if food places offered voting. obama voters asked for a pop-up voting place at the university of northern iowa. they had the first lady at the go vote now event. they had the first lady speak and they had the university marching band lead people from the audience of the first lady's speech directly to the voting booth. don't you always wish voting was like this? voting needs more drum majors, more cow bell, more skinny kid in the front wearing a xylophone and playing the keys off of it. i want voting to always have this happening. the obama folks are ahead in the polls. they are trying to reap tangible benefits from this. right now follow the marching bands to the polls. the romney folks are behind. they don't want america to vote right now. if america went and voted right now, nate silver says president obama would win by 138 electoral vote. there are no marching bands leading people to the polls from the romney side right now. that is not what they need. what the romney side needs is they'd still have to persuade people that mitt romney is the guy to vote for. the

group is challenging in terms of their registration and their right to vote. look at this. "the names selected for purging include hundreds of college students, trailer park residents, homeless people, and african-americans in counties president obama won in 2008." "the l.a. times" reporting today the tea party reporter vigilantes are hone in on college students in particular. the ohio voter integrity project challenged the voting rights of college students at ohio state and oberlin, kent state, and on and on and on and on. you have to give your name and state some kind of reason why you think the person you're challenging shouldn't be allowed to vote. you have to fill in this form, sign it under penalty of election falsification. you give the reason, you sign the form, you turn it in. so what's the reason this self-appointed tea party group is giving for challenging the voting rights of all of these students at all these ohio colleges? well, "the l.a. times" reports the reason is, "failure to specify dorm room numbers." dorm room numbers? yes, it's legal to register to vote at your c

is the obama campaign has to convert being ahead in people's preferences to actual votes. since they are clearly ahead, a good time to get those votes cast is right now. because thanks to early voting, people are casting ballots right now. so this lead that they have now in the polls can be banked. it can be turned into actual votes while they're still ahead, even if they don't end up being this far ahead by election day. iowa became the first swing state in the nation where voters are actually voting early in person. iowa has interesting rules where if you get enough signatures from your area, you can ask to have a pop-up popping place, sort of like if food places offered voting. obama voters asked for a pop-up voting place at the university of northern iowa. they had the first lady at the go vote now event. they had the first lady speak and they had the university marching band lead people from the audience of the first lady's speech directly to the voting booth. don't you always wish voting was like this? voting needs more drum majors, more cow bell, more skinny kid in the fr
